About Me




Call me Johan.

Born in Colombia, grew up in the United States. Currently in Bogota, Colombia, teaching English and doing written translations for the University of Maine.

Relaxed, Introspective.
Good sense of humor,
I like to party, dance, write, sing, eat, and kick back and RELAX with a cold beer.

Love music.

Love stories.

Happy when I am writing my own stories.

Happier when discovering a new writer who tells me about exciting new things and cultures.

Happiest when listening to someone tell me a fantastic story.

Life is good.


Where there is music, I will follow..especially if I can MOOOOOOVVVVVEE...

SO.....tell me a story.....


If I laugh so hard that I make myself cry at least once a week, I know I am doing something right..
